"large number of working class
people" in the Detroit area are
more open to the notion of banding
together for a common cause
because the presence of unions.
The result is a greater
willingness to join a grassroots
group, Brush said.
DAVID SHEVRIN is state
canvass director for Michigan
Citizens Lobby, a group concerned
with issues such as abolishing
electric rate hikes for corporate
cost overruns. He attributes some
of the lobby's success to economic
factors. "In 1981, all the people we
talked with had been laid off. In
1986, we return to their doorsteps,
they remember us and are more
able to support us.
"We are able to come to their
doors and say, 'Here is another
victory accomplished because of
support from people like you,'"
Shevrin mentioned the passage
of right-to-know legislation last
March- which came after the
lobby's efforts to persuade people to
send hundreds of postcards to
state senators- as one of the
group's recent successes.
THE grassroots groups also
stress educating citizens.
Kathy Doyle, field manager
for PIRGIM last summer, cited
two reasons for PIRGIM's
educational efforts. "People are
interested in finding out more
about issues that affect them, such
as toxic dumping. And we're able
to give them information they
might not be able to obtain through
conventional media sources," she
Else of Greenpeace believes
that a successful canvassing
depends on the canvasser. "The
people working for us are good at
what they do. They are educated
and up on the issues," he said.
But Burnout is common among
canvassers because of apathy
among the general public. Doyle
said she canvassed because she
cares about the issues and wants
to inform people about them, but
she did get frustrated.
"It got really hard at times, but
I just kept remembering that I'd
run across a number of cool people
each night if I kept at it. That was
enough to keep me going," she
According to Bruce Young of
Greenpeace, canvassing is not for
everyone, but it is worth a try.
"You learn alot by doing it," he
said. "You realize that people's
perception of social and political
issues are not what the media
portrays them to be. Things aren't

WEST QUAD resident
adviser Rich Stupak said all the
dormitory's phones were working
at the beginning of the term, and
only one phone has
malfunctioned so far. Stupak
lived in the dorm during the
installation in the spring and
said the Centel workers have been
more considerate this fall.
The new network has enabled
the University to provide its own
long distance service to any
system phone, including those in

requested it three weeks ago.
. MAYO said the
completes applications within one
vreek, but the housing office must
approve them before they go to his
office. In the meantime, Mayo
said, students can use credit
cards or party billing service to
call long distance.
Although greatly dissatisfied
with the installation and
inconirenient features of the new
system, Levy said the new phones
are "no worse than the old
system" for students.

completely out of service for the

had paid for, and summer term

from the West Quad housing staff
